FEATURED BLOGGER REPORT: Poems By Pacific Paratrooper #AceHistoryDesk reports

I think we are all in need of a more light-hearted post by now …..

A FRIEND, YOUR AMERICAN M.P.

When soldiers go out and have some fun,

They always forget about some other one.

That someone’s on duty every day,

To see that these soldiers are safe at play.

They call him names that we can’t print,

But they should sit down and try to think.

These men are detailed for this tough job,

So why go around and call him a snob?

When a guy’s in trouble, and things look bad,

They call on this fellow, and then he’s not bad.

At the end they will say, “this fellow took up for me.”

And the fellow that did it was your American M.P.

One thing to remember fellows when you’re down and out,

There’s a fellow that will help you if he hears you shout.

He will stand beside you and fight like hell.

So do the right thing, and treat him well.

Just remember fellows on your holiday,

One of your buddies can’t go out and play.

You call him an outcast, and other names,

But he’s your buddy, just the same.

We envy no one, try never to do harm.

We’re here to keep you safe, in every form.

So if you see us on duty, please don’t get mad.

Remember we’re here for you, and that M.P.’s aren’t bad.

– S/Sgt. GODFREY J. DARBY

WAR AND HELL

When reception is poor and the signal stinks

And you think of bed and your forty winks

And the PE coughs and pulls high jinks

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

When your grease is cold and your rear guns fails

With a Zero riding each of your tails

And you curse your luck and bite your nails

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

When you’ve hiked all night and your feet are sore

And your throat’s all parched and your clothes are tore

And the C.O. says just ten miles more

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

When you’re climbing a hill and the motor’s hot

And the left read blows like a pistol shot

You hope its a back fire but you know it’s not

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

When the whistle blows for the day’s mail call

And you’re sweating a letter from your butter-ball

And Jones gets a card and they say that’s all

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

When the chow bell rings and you hope for ham

But the guy who cooks don’t give a damn

So all you get is a slab of Spam

That ain’t war, that’s hell.

But when the war’s been won by your nation

And you dream of home with anticipation

But the order says Army of Occupation

Brother that will be hell.

– Sgt. CARL BROOKMAN
